“A comprehensive overview of creating a Joomla website. My objective: To get a comprehensive overview of creating a Joomla website from the perspective of a complete beginner with Joomla. I am pleased to report that the course did exactly what it said on the tin and I have an understanding of what is involved. I have in the past studied but, not worked with, WordPress but that was a number of years ago. I will definitely have to come back to the course in the future, to refresh my memory but believe it was a very useful training exercise. At least now, when I am talking to a potential web developer, I will have some idea what he is talking about. The only adverse comment I would make, is that the material relating to some aspects of the course is dated a bit, but that is very acceptable given the “One Stop” (website) comprehensive nature of the course. It was exactly what I wanted and needed. Thank you. Heber. ”

    I have been working with computers since way back in 1983. As a teenager, I discovered I had an ability to explain things simply and although it took some time, I eventually incorporated this skill into my work. My web development career started in 1995 and I started teaching online in 2008. These days I love producing online courses that are easy to understand and produce fast results. You'll usually find me staring at some sort of screen, but when I escape, I'm either juggling four kids or taking a hike through the beautiful bushland that surrounds my hometown of Sydney, Australia.
